  • 7 Winning Attitudes for Being your Fittest After 40

    7 Winning Attitudes for Being your Fittest After 40

    Unpopular thing to say: We aren’t little kids anymore. Sorry I know it is a rude way to open up an article but hang with me! I have some great stuff for you. Why does being fit after 40 seem so hard? I could sum it up that after 40, your body is different, your lifestyle is different, and for some reason most fitness solutions are totally catered to 21 year olds . I’ve never really understood this. 21 year olds tend to be flaky knuckleheads with no clear priorities. I know I was. Despite this, many tend to just naturally be in shape. It makes no sense that the fitness industry caters to them so much. Authors note, I am about to be 35 so technically a little ....

    Staying Healthy on the Road

    Whether it’s a road trip, weekend get away, work trip, or travel abroad, traveling can absolutely wreck the healthy habits you’ve worked so hard to form .

    3 Micro Habits with Big Payoffs

    You need more than fitness. This is one of the first things I tell my personal training clients . It is also why we take an integrated, whole lifestyle approach. Lack of working out is obviously part of the solution and we solve that with personal training. But what about the other things that made us gain weight and/or get out of shape? What we are talking about is changing your overall lifestyle, which…is completely overwhelming. Telling someone to change their whole life doesn’t end up being great advice in practice .

    How to Save Money on Personal Training without Hiring a Cheap Trainer

    On Target Fitness isn’t the Alec show, but here is a little story for you. I got my start in Personal Training when I was on a NROTC Scholarship in college . I had seen how powerful fitness could be for myself and then for others. Fitness had opened the door for me to have the Marine Corps pay for my education and to commission as an officer upon graduation. Not a bad reward for getting in shape. When I started seeing my personal training clients transformations, that’s when I truly appreciated the impact of personal training. I had two clients who were parents. They were very heavy and they knew it was time to do something about it. After a couple short months ....

    Sleep, Stress, and Sugar After 40

    Getting the most of your fitness and personal training routines after the age of 40 takes a different approach. Let’s review the dirty little secret personal trainers and other fitness pros don’t want you to know: It is never your workout in the gym that makes you better . It is the recovery from the workout that makes you stronger, fitter, leaner, and overall healthier. When it comes to time in the gym, more is not more. This is something that a 20 year old fitness influencer often misses. When we are in our 20’s, our body recovers from anything lightning fast without any effort .
